According to project documents, the improved NHHS line will bring economic and environmental benefits to the region.

  • Create 12,590 construction and related jobs;
  • Increase annual trips on the line by 1.26 million by 2030; and
  • Save more than 3.5 million gallons of fuel each year.

Tri-State has long supported the NHHS project and plans to submit comments on its environmental assessment in the coming weeks. Three public hearings have been scheduled, and comments can be submitted to Mark.W.Alexander@ct.gov.
